Liked the light hoppy taste. Liked the color. I ride a MTB and this would be great out on the trail after a long ride. Iíll try more Boulder beers in the future.

A beer I pick up fairly often. Very unique. Aroma of sweet malts and sweet aroma hops such as cascades. Slightly lingering bitter aftertaste with metallic notes. Nice copper color.

Not bad at all. Pours a deep copper color with a loosely formed head. Aroma is of malts, with some sweet, maybe citrus, undertones. Flavor is of sweet malts with a slightly alcoholic bitter finish. Body could be a little fuller, though, but still a great beer when you just want to sit and watch a ballgame.

Pours light amber with a rich beige head and a toffee and pine aroma. There is a substantial caramel malt flavor with sticky hop bitterness and a dry finish.

A light amber/copper color with some burnt orange highlights around the bottom. Hazy. A white, soapy head with not much size and only average retention and lacing. A rather robust malt tone that brought forth some caramel and some wheat bread. Some sweet, sugary notes similar to a baked pear or baked apple. Some of the earthy, "peat" aromas Iím not real fond of however. Maybe a bit of toffee in there too. The taste is a bit more mild and not as robust, but much better balanced than the smell. Again, some caramel malt with the earthy tone. Some of the sugary notes blend in well. Small tinge of bitterness, but not overbearing. Medium mouthfeel. Rather smooth and dry. Leaves touches on the palate. This beer is ok. Not my favorite, but easily drinkable regardless. That "peat" aroma and flavor gets to me after a bit, but I could still down a couple with relative ease. If you see it, pick it up but donít go out of your way.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - OCT 22, 2011
(cask, as "Fresh Track") amber with almost no head. Caramel malt and mild hops aroma. Great cask mouthfeel. Caramel malt flavor with a little pine/grass hops in the finish. Very nice cask ale.

PBOYNY (316) - Westchester, New York, USA - JAN 4, 2002
NICE MALT, THIS BEER IS PRETTY GOOD, SOMEWHAT HEAVY AFTER 5 OR 6.ITíS A LITTLE BIT BETTER OUT OF THE TAP, THE BOTTLES TEND TO BE A BIT FIZZY. PROBABLY ONE OF THE BEST BEERS BREWED IN BOULDER, BUT THAT DOESNT SAY MUCH, NOW DOES IT?

PorterPounder (5340) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2003
Soapy white head with sticky lacing. Pleasant copper (go figure) colored appearance. Nutty, chewy aroma. Flavor has some sweet citrus notes to it - more akin to a pale ale. Detect a bit of caramel as well. Decent mouthfeel - could be just a bit thicker, though. Overall a good amber ale.

tap at the pub 1/10/05 Surprisingly, itís copper colored! Not much head. Aroma was a nice mix of spice and intense hops. Not as malty as I was expecting, but intresting. Piney hops and a dry, spicy flavor from the rye in the mash. Finishes a touch earthy with a note of citrus. Tasty.

Not too bad. Two rounds. Reddish and lovely. Hard nosed like pebbles on the biking trail.
